[mythtv-users] HD-PVR IR Blaster Problems

I had the hdpvr working fine, including blaster on my ubuntu 10.04 backend.
The blaster recently stopped working, I believe it was due to the latest
kernel update, 2.6.36.

I went through the complete procedure to get working, which I successfully
did a couple months ago, but no luck after at least 8 hours of work. I tried
rebooting using the previous kernel version but that didn't help either.

So, I am looking desperately for help.

Here is what I have for status:
root at myth2:/home/mark# dmesg|grep lirc
[  297.789423] lirc_dev: IR Remote Control driver registered, major 249
[  297.801777] lirc_zilog: Zilog/Hauppauge IR driver initializing
[  297.810574] lirc_zilog: chip found with RX and TX
[  297.810712] lirc_dev: lirc_register_driver: sample_rate: 0
[  298.129836] lirc_zilog: Zilog/Hauppauge IR blaster firmware version 2.1.0
[  298.129939] lirc_zilog: initialization complete

I assume this means the drivers are installed and working properly...
